This new Plan of Adjustment, affects the majority of the population, the measures
represent the biggest social cuts in the history of democracy today (65,000 million in two
years), are a huge scam to end the basic rights of the working class, public sector and
private sector, the unemployed, dependents and social groups most popular and precarious.
The measures deal a mortal blow to the system of social and labor relations that we were
To this we must add those made by the PP government previously as labor reform, tax
increases, the General State Prespuestos 2012, cuts in education that involve the
elimination of scholarships, aid to school canteens, increases of tuition fees and laying
off thousands of teachers, or cuts in health including health repayment of medicines, the
closure of hospital beds and outpatient centers and laying off thousands of workers, all
with those taken the previous administration on cuts in social spending, Pension Reform,
Collective Bargaining, wage cuts, ...
With this social robbery, the government explores his idea that the crisis we have to pay
the most vulnerable social groups, and workers in the public sector and private
individuals pensioners, and dependents, people without jobs and income , women and
children victims of domestic violence, ... and thus sustain the privileges and corruption
of those who govern us, speculators and tax dodgers, the rich and powerful. There is no
single measure that would harm business.
Moreover, these adjustments do nothing but further impoverish society thus contributing to
unemployment and deepening economic recession that leads to ruin everyone.
Since the CGT we say with strongly that it is time to change, is the time of general
mobilization as a society and demand in the streets, at work, in business, what is ours by
right. It's time to add all wills, because the aggression is against the whole society, it
is time to call a general strike to halt once and for all this savage aggression that we
For the CGT, you need to take to the streets every day, ending the social peace and stop
fighting to get away with this unjust and unequal system. Thus, we again appeal to all
people, social organizations and unions, so that together we go to defend the rights and
freedoms that Spanish society urgently needs to recover.
